(1528 - 1577 / France)

La Cygalle

O que nous t'estimons heureuse,
Gentille Cygale amoureuse,
Car aussi tost que tu as beu
Dessus les arbrisseaux un peu
De la rosée, aussi contente
Qu'est une princesse puissante,
Tu fais de ta doucette vois
Tressaillir les monz et les bois.

Tout ce qu'aporte la campagne,
Tout ce qu'aporte la montagne,
Est de ton propre. Au laboureur
Tu plais sur-tout, car son labeur
N'offences ni portes dommage
N'à luy, ni à son labourage.
Tout homme estime ta bonté,
Douce prophette de l'été.

La Muse t'aime, et t'aime aussi
Apollon, qui t'a fait ainsi
Doucement chanter. La vieillesse
Comme nous jamais ne te blesse,

O sage, o fille terre-née,
Aime-chansons, passionnée
Qui ne fus onc d'affection,
Franche de toute passion,
Sans estre de sang ni de chair,
Presque semblable à Jupiter.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
